Republicans are significantly outpacing Democrats in new voter registration in the crucial swing state of Pennsylvania, with the GOP registering almost 165,000 since the 2016 primary. Only 30,000 new registered Democrats have joined the party during the same time frame, even as the party conducted a competitive presidential primary election. This makes for a difference of 135,000 voters in favor of the Republican Party, a margin that could easily prove crucial to determining the state’s electoral fate in November.
Democrats still do outnumber Republicans in total in the east coast state, a relic of the state’s decades of strict allegiance to the party. President Trump’s 2016 victory largely came about as a result of his surprise victory in the state, which smug neoliberal political pundits had assumed was a lock for the Democrat.
Pennsylvania Republican Party chairman Lawrence Tabas cited the voter registration surge on the part of Republicans in an interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer as a reason to be optimistic about securing a victory for the President in the state in November, citing the thin margin of victory in 2016.
“Look, the president won our state by 44,000-plus votes in 2016,” said Tabas. “We have since picked up and narrowed the gap between us and the Democrats [by 135,000]. So we were already ahead 44,000, and look what we’ve picked up. I predict we’re going to narrow the gap further between now and November.”
The most recent polls surveying the voters of Pennsylvania show a tight horse race between Trump and Biden, with the former eroding the latter’s former lead to compete with the Democrat within the margin of error. The most recent poll CNBC showed Biden leading Trump by merely 2%, 48% to 46%. That’s not much different than the polls favoring Hillary Clinton in the state before then-candidate Trump’s shock election night victory.
Don’t believe sham polls. This race is red hot.
WATCH: Joe Biden Reads Teleprompter Incorrectly: “I Got to the Senate 180 Years Ago”
That kind of experience is unmatched.
Joe Biden stated that he “got to the Senate 180 years ago” when delivering a scripted campaign speech from a room in his Delaware home on Saturday.

That would’ve been in 1840, when Martin Van Buren was President. There were 52 Senators at the time, and the Democratic Party controlled the chamber, with a Whig minority in opposition. Biden was talking about supporting first responders and firefighters, who would’ve existed in a vastly different capacity in the mid-19th century.
Biden did laugh a little bit after he made the error, which seems to have stemmed from faulty teleprompter instructions or Biden simply misreading the screen in front of him.

Biden’s campaign appearances have been almost entirely scripted as of late, with the Democratic Party’s elder figure even going so far as reading from a teleprompter during interviews.
It’s very sad that the Democratic Party elite and Joe Biden’s handlers have allowed this to continue. A man with an arguably severe level of cognitive decline should not be the President of a nation of 330 million people. That is not right.
However, you almost can’t blame them for binding him concisely to the words on the teleprompter. Unscripted campaign appearances have proved to be even more of a disaster, with Biden forgetting the words to the Pledge of Allegiance in a campaign speech earlier this week, for example.
